# H Sensitivity

## Suggested starting exposure times in H-band mode for an H-magnitude=5 is 45 seconds when observing with a coronagraph.

The zero-point of each channel in H-band mode is given below, the max zero-point is J = 17.4 mag.

The curve below shows the 2-read saturation limit with no coronagraph. The maximum allowable magnitude to avoid saturation is J = 6.8 mag

NOTE: Throughput of SCExAO rebuild and AO performance on any particular night will affect these numbers. Strehl ratios of 60-80% were estimated when this data was taken
